Royal Challengers Bangalore start 2018 IPL as favourites

The 2018 Indian Premier League gets under way on 7th April, and the usual suspects, Royal Challenger Bangalore, start the competition as favourites.

RCB (as they are also known) boast a line up that includes the top batsman in 50 Overs world cricket, Virat Kohli, in their ranks, alongside overseas stars such as AB de Villiers, Quinton De Kock, Brendon McCullum, Tim Southee, and Chris Woakes, to name a few.

Such as star studded line up has seen RCB start the competition as favourites before, like last year when they had players like Chris Gayle, Shane Watson, de Villiers and Kohli in their ranks, but finished bottom of the table with just 3 wins from their 14 matches.

This season they will be expecting different, and RCB start off as 7/2 favourites with William Hill to lift the trophy in Mumbai on 27th May (yes, that’s right, the 2th May).
